In comes Etsy. In an era when brides have so many choices at their fingertips, there's no better place to shop for a wedding day look that truly sets you apart from the rest.

What to Look for In a Wedding Veil

When it comes to selecting your wedding veil, it's important to find a style that not only reflects your bridal aesthetic but complements your wedding outfit. If you're wearing a dress with all-over embellishments, you may choose to match your wedding dress with an ornate veil, or alternatively, pair it with a simple veil to highlight the details of the dress. If you're a minimalist bride, you could also go one of two ways. If you want to keep your overall look clean and sleek, then opt for a simple raw edge veil. If you want to add some color or drama to your look, consider a statement-making veil. For the bride whose dress has stunning back details, a short veil or a blusher is an easy way to don a veil and showcase your dress at the same time.

  • Should I wear a wedding veil?

    It's completely up to you whether you want to wear a veil or not. While some brides would feel incomplete without a veil, others choose to forgo one entirely. Our advice would be to try on different styles of veils with your wedding dress to determine if it's the right look for you.

  • What are the different wedding veil lengths?

    The most common wedding veil lengths/styles are Bird Cage, Shoulder-Length, Blusher, Fingertip, Elbow, Knee-Length, Waltz, Floor-Length, Chapel, and Catherdral-Length.

  • Should my veil match the color of my wedding dress?

    Your veil doesn't necessarily have to match the color of your wedding dress. While some brides prefer to color-match their outfit to their veil, others may choose to experiment with texture and color.
